It just works

I tried these Shinkos on another bike and they worked great and the price was right. Rather than trying different brands and models I like to just stick with something that works. I commute on a DR650 on a mix of gravel and blacktop. My last rear tire went 6,000 miles before it was bald and squared off. I replaced it with another Shinko 705.

shinko 705 rear tire

Just put the shinko 705 rear tire on my 99 Triumph Tiger. Super smooth and has great grip on wet or dry pavement. This is by far the best tire that I have used.

Short Life

This tire has a great price and good traction wet or dry roads (not mud). Cornering is ok once you get a feel for the tire, falls in faster than any tire I've had. Tread life looks like it's going to be at the wear bars on only 3K miles. A little more vibration than a strictly street tire but that's to be expected.

Going on fifth set of 705's

After trying several others for 20,000 miles, NOTHING really betters these for my use. The price makes it a no brainer. The following 30,000 miles on the 705's riding 12/12 make me a long term fan. I get the same wear rate but considering the much lower cost I don't take the tread down as far. Even still, it's safer cheaper riding.

Shrinko 705

Have these tires on several DS bikes used for street and mild backroads . A really great tire for daily rides on dry or wet streets, gravel , dry dirt, loom . Not for wet dirt/mud or grass . Tread lasts me 5500 to 7000 miles depending which bike and how hard I ride that bike . Traction is great as is cornering . Smooth and quiet running . I have a 19" rear on the front of an XT600 for a SM style and a 150-18 rear(6" wide), great use for them. Will continue to buy for my SM and 80-90% street DS bikes.

705 Shinko

I use these tires on my BMW GS 1200 and my Super Tenere. I have purchased at least 16 front and rear! I get 5k from the rear and 12-13k from the front. I have ridden on a lot of seasonal roads(dirt) hot,hot weather ( key west in July) , cold in Newfoundland , lots of rain and I've never had any problem with the exception of a nail once or twice. I have used many other brands in the past and none have out performed the 705. Great tire !!!

Good for the Money

3K on front and rear on klr 650...I like the rear tire for back roads and some gravel...will get 5k out of rear....On the front i will not replace with same tire...maybe a shinko 244...I find that the front 705 is unsafe in wet conditions and dont care for handling...i prefer the 700 or 244 upfront...I have tried front from 22psi up to 38psi...

Shinko 705

I refer to 705's as Metzler Tourance clones. Work great, road and good gravel. I only get about 4500 miles on a rear, but for 63.00,what a deal!

Great tire for me.

KLR 650, I ride real easy, but I like to turn quickly. These tires have never let me down rain or shine. I ride year round, cold and hot wet or dry. Don't expect much in mud, especially clay. Gravel sand, hard pack dirt roads they are really good. 16,000 miles on front and 40% left, 8500 miles for rear is about what I have been getting. I ride mostly paved, but I live a mile back on a gravel road. I have bought 3 rears and 2 fronts in 37,000 miles. One set of 244s but the 705s fit my riding stile more.

Great DS tires

Huge bang for the buck on these tires. I'm on my 3rd rear and 2nd front in 21k miles (the stock Pirelli tires wore out in 4k, so you do the math). All in all, I ride about 70% street very aggressively like a sport bike, and 30% as a dirt/gravel rider on gnarly dry stuff, but not sand or mud. These tires work well in dry dirt/gravel even at street pressures (better lower of course), and very good in all conditions on the street. Wet traction isn't as good a 90/10 or 80/20 tire, but still great. Tread life is just okay for the rear, like most real DS tire, so it's on par. That said, I can literally buy a full set of Shinko's for the price of one rear tire of another brand and after 16k on them on my Tiger 800xc can say I'm not changing brands.

Great price for a good tire / Vstrom 650 ABS

This is my second set. The front is now over 7K and looks like 70% life left in it. The first rear got 9K, but the tread started to pull apart. Speed I think was a factor. I just got back from a 4K mile loop out to Yellowstone on the new rear and the tires performed flawlessly. I was riding 2 up with my wife, fully loaded (2) 36 liter, (1) 52 liter - and had no issues. I rode the pressure a bit lower than the 41psi recommended (I ran 36psi) and I never took it above 75 mph. We hit water, snow, gravel, dirt, grass, hopped curbs, 107 degree temps for hours, 40 degree temps for hours, 11,000 foot elevation.....basically, other than the speed, I rode normally. I will install another. I advise to regularly check the "knobs" for cracks or wear, run a bit lower psi than recommended, and replace rear before 10K. Other than that, ride away.

Great tire

30psi on road, less when I'm off road. 40k miles on my KLR so I have run some different tires. This is by far the best bang for your money. Mileage is reasonable and it sticks well and has good feel on the road. Off road does well too- for sure not a mud tire, but will let me ride my KLR anywhere you will want to take a KLR.

Not bad at all

Thus far I really haven't seen any difference from the stock Trail Wings my 2012 V-Strom 1k came with. Assuming it lasts 5k miles it will be a great deal. They aren't straight street tires so they aren't super soft like a Q2 and wont stick like glue in turns. They aren't off road knobbies so they only do fair in gravel and and not too good in mud. You get a lot in this type of tire, but its the master of nothing but a "Jack of all trades".
